The chirped-pulse interaction in the adiabatic coupling regime induces cyclic permutations of the energy states of a three-level system in the $V$-type configuration, which process is known as the three-level chirped rapid adiabatic passage. Here we show that a spectral hole in a chirped pulse can turn on and off one of the two adiabatic crossing points of this process, reducing the system to an effective two-level system. The given hybrid adiabatic-nonadiabatic transition results in selective…

Single-laser-pulse implementation of arbitrary ZYZ rotations of an atomic qubit
Arbitrary rotation of a qubit can be performed with a three-pulse sequence; for example, ZYZ rotations. However, this requires precise control of the relative phase and timing between the pulses,

The degenerate Landau–Zener–Majorana–Stückelberg model consists of two degenerate energy levels whose energies vary with time and in the presence of an interaction which couples the states of the two
Master-equation approach to the three-state open Majorana model
The three-state Majorana model in the presence of dissipation is considered. Different models of system-environment interaction are explored, ranging from situation where dissipation is the main


Quantum dynamics of a two-state system induced by a chirped zero-area pulse
It is well known that area pulses make Rabi oscillation and chirped pulses in the adiabatic interaction regime induce complete population inversion of a two-state system. Here we show that chirped
Coherent population dynamics of a three-level atom in spacetime
This work explores temporal and spatial aspects of coherent population transfer in a three-level atom through a synergic combination of experimental measurements and theoretical calculations.
Quantum interference control of a four-level diamond-configuration quantum system
We investigate coherent control of the two-photon transition pathways of a four-level atomic system in a diamond configuration. When an ultrashort laser pulse interacts with this system in the ground
Three-state selective population of dressed states via generalized spectral phase-step modulation
We present a joint experimental and theoretical study of selective population of dressed states (SPODS) in a three-level system. Control is exerted by shaped intense femtosecond laser pulses
Coherent control of multiphoton-ionization passage of excited-state rubidium atoms
We have investigated multiphoton-ionization passages of rubidium atoms initiated from the excited 5P3/2 energy state. For this we used coherent control schemes based on femtosecond laser pulse
Stimulated Raman adiabatic passage in a three-level superconducting circuit
The stimulated Raman adiabatic passage for circuit quantum electrodynamics is benchmarked by employing the first three levels of a transmon qubit by demonstrating a population transfer efficiency >80% between the ground state and the second excited state.
Adiabatic interpretation of a two-level atom diode, a laser device for unidirectional transmission of ground-state atoms
We present a generalized two-level scheme for an 'atom diode', namely, a laser device that lets a two-level ground-state atom pass in one direction, say from left to right, but not in the opposite
Laser phase modulation approaches towards ensemble quantum computing.
Selective control of decoherence is demonstrated for a multilevel system by generalizing the instantaneous phase of any chirped pulse as individual terms of a Taylor series expansion. In the case of
Coherent population transfer among quantum states of atoms and molecules
The authors discuss the technique of stimulated Raman adiabatic passage (STIRAP), a method of using partially overlapping pulses (from pump and Stokes lasers) to produce complete population transfer
Robust photon locking.
A strong-field coherent control mechanism that combines the advantages of photon locking and rapid adiabatic passage is experimentally demonstrated using shaped pulses generated by phase modulation of the spectrum of a femtosecond laser pulse with a generalized phase discontinuity.
